MOSCOW (Reuters) — Yury Borisov, head of Russia’s Roscosmos space agency, said on Sept. 21 that Russia is highly likely to participate in the International Space Station (ISS) project until 2028, RIA news agency reported.
Russia has said it would be ready to extend a deal with the United States to share flights to the ISS beyond 2024 if the first three flights are successful.
The space station, which was launched in 1998, has been continuously occupied since November 2000 under a U.S.-Russian-led partnership that also includes Canada, Japan and 11 European countries.
